1/48 HobbyBoss F8F Bearcat Indochina


Recommended Posts

Hello,

This kit sits finished for some time now, but I finally have some time to share it with You guys.

This is very nice kit from HobbyBoss, but with some shape issues. Cowling requires some sanding to make it more similar to the real thing. I've replaced wheels with those from True details. Eduard zoom adds some details in the cockpit. Fit of this kit is pretty good except wing to fuselage joint. Some filling and sanding is required there. Wings have some shape issues too. Intakes are too close to body. I've put thin styrene, and that makes general appearance somewhat better... But the problem still exist, and some major surgery is required to solve that problem. I decided to leave it as it is. Looks like a Bearcat, that's good enough for me.
